In brief: Depends

Depends whether you have liver disease or not.
It also depends on what type liver disease you have.

In brief: Liver biopsy

A core biopsy of liver can be used to help diagnose a wide variety of medical liver diseases, the presence of cirrhosis and the presence of certain tumors, including metastatic tumors.
Fine needle aspirations of liver masses are usually performed to assess for the presence or absence of a malignancy.
